To make up for kicking KSR out of the lobby during yesterday’s radio show, The Peabody invited Matt, Ryan, Shannon, and Drew to be honorary duckmasters for the famous Peabody Duck March this morning.
If you’ve never been before, the duck march is a big, big thing. The ducks come down from their home on the roof of The Peabody hotel at 11 a.m. every day to get in the fountain, and at 5 p.m., go back up for the night. The ceremony of bringing them down draws in over 200,000 visitors to The Peabody each year, and this morning, hundreds of people crowded around the fountain in the lobby to watch our motley crew do the honors. I’ve been coming to the Peabody to watch the march since I was a little girl, so getting to tag along to document the behind-the-scenes action was really, really cool.
Here’s the reserved seat and a close up of one of the duck canes Matt, Ryan, Drew, and Shannon received:
And the behind-the-scenes footage of us going up the elevator to get the ducks, one of the most surreal things we may have ever done:

Thanks again to The Peabody for inviting us to be part of such a big event. We are definitely #TeamDuck.
